Postdoc: USDA Bacterial Foodborne Pathogens and Mycology Research unit

The Bacterial Foodborne Pathogens and Mycology Research Unit at USDA-NCAUR in Peoria, Illinois, has two postdoctoral associate positions available.

  1. The successful applicant will study comparative genomics of Fusarium in order to elucidate genetic mechanisms that have given rise to the current diversity and distribution of secondary metabolite and pathogenicity-related genes in the F. fujikuroispecies complex.  For a more detailed description of the position and information on how to apply, please go to https://www.usajobs.gov/GetJob/ViewDetails/361765700or contact Robert Proctor (robert.proctor@ars.usda.gov; tel. 309-681-6380).
  2. The successful applicant will use molecular biological and microbiological techniques to identify and characterize the microbial genes that modify, detoxify, or otherwise confer resistance to mycotoxins.  For a more detailed description of the position and information on how to apply, please go to https://www.usajobs.gov/GetJob/ViewDetails/360735200 or contact Susan McCormick(Susan.McCormick@ars.usda.gov; tel. 309-681-6381).
